The Chair Dilemma

*Update. I've made a decision. The majority said don't worry about matching, so I'm going with green polka dot for Elliott and pink polka dot for Lillie. The pink and red will clash a little, but I like the idea of them sharing in the polka dots... I guess it's a twin thing!

When Jack turned 1 my mom and Ken gave him his "red chair" and he LOVES it. So naturally I want Lillie and Elliott to have one too. My dilemma is this. Do I try to coordinate their chairs with Jacks or do I just pick 2 that I like and not worry about if it "matches" or not. I think I know where I'm leaning (matching vs. non- matching). What do you think?

Jack has red. Which one do you think Lillie and Elliott should have?

I like the green and white polka dot or the pink or green gingham for Lillie, and the denim or green gingham for Elliott. Maddie has the pink gingham and she also loves it. They are very cute!!

These are all so cute it seems like you can't go wrong, but I like the blue and the light blue and red gingham.

If you have the twins match each other then I think they will coordinate with Jack's. I understand Conner has the red chair too and then when it was Mason's turn I really liked the gingham but we got the denim to match the red and I am happy with it. Whatever you pick will be cute and you are the ones that have to look at it every day.

i have the similar problem... raymond and max fight over max's chair all day (max's has the same one as jack!) i have been trying to decide which one to get for raymond!

Those will be so cute! Charlie has the red one too and he loves his as well! (Piper will be getting hers next Christmas!)

I vote for the pink polka dot for Lillie and the denim for Jack, but you always make great selections so go with the colors you like best. Sorry the Today Show didn't work out. Love to all.

I think you made a good choice. They will enjoy them so much. I can see them now, sitting in their chairs watching their Praise Video. Hope you will have a good weekend, have fun Halloween night and be careful. Hugs to all, Great Gran

These are awesome! I like the sage green polka dot, & yes the pink polka dot as well. Also the green,dark pink or blue gingham is a non match. If you did green polka dot for Lillie and the green or blue gingham for Elliott, Then The red chair Jack already has would be cool. Also the navy denim is cool for a male & would go well with the red too. Hey your choice, so many choices. I would have a hard time making a decision too! Good luck & sure you will make the right one.

I'm with great gran. Pick what you like and don't worry about them matching. Right now they may not look okay side by side. But one day they may have there own rooms and it would be nice to having something to goes with there personalities.

I love that it is a twin thing. That makes them extra special. Go for what you would have done if they were born first and whatever you want. Kids are different and they should be treated as themselves. Love Aunt Di

This idea, of the little chairs with names on them, is so cool. I have noticed this chairs in Steph's, Angie's and your blog already. Really need! I wish we had such things over here. I might have to check out if they would deliver them to Germany. Have you got an internet adress of them for me?
And answering your question, I would say, pick the colors you like. Because the kids might not tell you yet what their favourite color is. Plus this could change anyway ;-)
Lots of Love, Antje
